Adventure Time miniseries with deep themes, character development, lasting messages

Islands is a series that explores Finn's backstory; along the way viewers will experience the pure ecstasy of the original show's wonderfully weird humor, unique characters, and mesmerizing visuals. It's endlessly creative, beautifully crafted, and overwhelmingly meaningful. Some violence, scariness.

This title has:

Too much violence
